i saw that. felt bad for the "rookie" fisherman with him. at least he got his entry fee back.

could they test the lish with a metal detector?

Could be worse...he could have put a small motor inside the fish. :)

Seriously. That's all I could think when I read the details of how the sinker worked.

There was some jerk who did that when I was a kid and took a biggest fish prize from me on a party boat. I was just a kid and my dad was pretty sure that's what the guy did. I htink the guy's name was Flatbar.

I can't believe they don't check fish with metal detectors in tournaments. That's got to be a very old (and easy) trick to pull.

The guy who took the biggest striped bass in the Vineyard Derby a couple of years ago lost out when an autopsy revealed that the fish's stomach held a couple of pounds of lead weights. Fisherman claimed that the fish must have just broken off after swallowing yo-yo'd pogies in the past (possible, but...).

Jeez guys we have been doing this on party boats since I was kid of 12 (Circa 1973) fishing the party boats of SoCal! The dead heads on the boat always win the JP and give it to the crew. That's why they let us ride for free.

The whole concept of professional bass fishing is beyond me. But I'll say it's at least more respectable than competitive eating. Or at least it was until this scandal.
